Coffe Anyone

COFFEE ANYONE
 
The Good Lord must have decided
Many years ago
That the world would need their coffee
To give them their get up and go
 
Another thing He added
And I don't think it was a sin
Was the product we call donuts
To use for dunking in
 
Now everywhere it's lineups
Especially at Tim's
Coffee fanatics all of us
With timbits as well thrown in
 
Sprouting up all over
Are coffee shops galore
Whoever invented it was using Their bean
And that we know fer sure!
 
So fellow coffee drinkers
I raise my cup to you
Let's drink a toast unto that fact
From a fresh made pot of brew
 
We have to have our coffee and
We'll do whatever it takes
That's why the Good Lord also instituted
The thing called "Coffee Breaks".

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
